Beauty | What Make Up I'm Wearing This Week..

I'm a really nosey person so I love looking at what make up other people use each week. I decided to make this a weekly feature on my blog which I will either post on a sunday or a monday of each week. As many of you know, I have now finished school (woo!) so I'm no longer needing to use my Estee Lauder Double Wear foundation everyday as I don't need the longevity that it gives at the moment as I'm just at home relaxing with my boyfriend! Therefore these posts are going to be more of a 'shopping my stash' kind of post as these generally aren't things that I use all of the time!


Face Products
Pupa Professionals Face Smoothing Primer:
I have been reaching for this as of late as when my Philosophy Present Primer reached the end of it's rein, I didn't think that anything could fill it's perfect shoes. However, this Italian primer has done quite a good job! I don't really like the fact that it is silicone based but it doesn't bother me too much.

Shideido Sun Protection Foundation SPF 30:
I brought this a while back as a recommendation from Fleur and as she said it was very long lasting, I thought it was right up my street. However, it wasn't quite as good as my Estee Lauder and therefore, it just felt to the back of my stash, but here it is, getting it's much deserved use!

Collection 2000 Lasting Perfection Concealer: 
This is one product that I rarely switch up unless it is for my Estee Lauder concealer. I love it, it's full coverage, doesn't look cakey and lasts such a long time! Perfect.

Face Products Continued..
Elf High Definition Powder: 
This is very similar to my amazing Mac Prep and Primer Transparent Finishing Powder and as I'm not going out really, I don't have a need to use my Mac one at the moment and this is why I'm making use of the elf one for the time being! 

Nars Blusher/Bronzer Trio:
This contains 3 of the most amazing face products that have ever lived and they all look so sublimely perfect against one another. The products included in this little compact are: Nars Orgasm Blusher, Nars Albatross Highlighter and Nars Laguna Bronzer. I love each one of these equally as much and I can't really say much else really, they're just perfect.

Lip Products
Mac Hue Lipstick: 
I picked all Mac lipsticks as they are getting very neglected of late because my Chanel lipsticks are getting all of the usage. I do really like this shade as it's a beautiful milky pink/nude shade. However, I never seem to wear this when I'm at school as I don't feel as thought it suits me as much as brighter colours however I do still like it. 

Mac Syrup Lipstick: 
I brought this one a month or so back when I saw essiebutton wearing it in one of her videos and decided I had to have it. It does have a purpley tinge to it and it is mostly a lighter shade of Plumful Lipstick by Mac. I do like to wear this lipstick even though it is more of a winter shade.

Mac Brave Lipstick: 
Most of you will have known that I showed this in my most recent haul and said that I wasn't sure whether I liked it or not. How the tables have turned, I love it. It's a perfect nude, my lips but better shade and what I love most is that it's a satin formula so doesn't melt and end up outside the lines of your lips!

Eye Products
Mac Devoted Poppy: 6 Classic Eyes Palette: 
This came out with Mac's Christmas Collection in 2009 and I remember buying it from a CCO as it was my first ever Mac product. I don't tend to use the blue and green, sometimes on the lash line but very rarely. I love the left hand side of the palette however and find that they make a beautiful everyday neutral eye.

Maybelline Colossal Volume Express Mascara: 
I picked this up in february time but never really touched it as I just had too many mascaras on the go, now that problem doesn't have seemed to lessened but I decided to use it anyhow and I do quite like it. I wouldn't say it gives loads of volume but I just find that it gives a nice natural coating to the lashes. 

Sorry for the long post! 
Do you change up your make up each week?
